article imageGaming community not that enthusiastic about 'Alien: Isolation'

By Stan Rezaee     Jan 7, 2014 in Entertainment
Sega's official announcement of 'Alien: Isolation' should bring enthusiasm to gamers regarding the new vision of the iconic franchise, but instead the gaming community is a little weary of the confirmation.
Instead most gamers are not that excited about a new Aliens game published by Sega while many are already expecting it to be a massive failure. Gamers have been expressing their lack of intrest on message boards and gaming sites like N4G.
Most of the gaming community's frustration comes from the failures of the highly-anticipated Aliens: Colonial Marines and Aliens Vs Predator. Gamers had high hopes for both games, only they were panned for the weak gameplay content and repetitive action.
The most common reply to the announcement has been gamers expecting another disappointment like Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Others have pointed out to the plot hole that new game has created since it was stated in Aliens that Amanda Ripley-McClaren died on earth while the Weyland-Yutani Corporation had never encountered a Xenomorph. Meanwhile the game is set 15 years after Alien and features Ripley's daughter having an encounter with the Xenomorph.
Gamers who are optimistic hope that game is more like the Ridley Scott original horror masterpiece. They are hoping the game is a true horror survival similar to Resident Evil with a Dead Space setting.
Mark Walton of GameSpot described the hands-on preview as, "After years of battling endless streams of aliens with a pulse rifle, it's nice to be reminded exactly how scary they can be."
Alien: Isolation will be the fourth game in the franchise that is published by Sega. It is set for release sometime in late 2014 for all major consoles.
